If you’re a conservative who cringes whenever the Hollywood left sneaks political punches into movies and shows, brace yourself for the brand-new Netflix original series Girlboss, which premiered April 21.

Conservative pundit Ann Coulter was set to speak at the University of California, Berkeley Thursday night but that plan was foiled by the threat of violence from radical leftists. “Now to Berkeley, California where new protests are breaking out tonight a day after conservative pundit Ann Coulter's plan to speak at U.C. Berkeley was abruptly canceled,” announced Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News that same evening. Despite the still looming threat of riots, both ABC and CBS decided to move on from the free speech controversy.

The pathetic behavior of action movie director Joss Whedon has been well documented here on NewsBusters, but his tweet on Thursday might be his worst one yet. In a Thursday evening tweet to his 178,000 followers, he used a picture of House Speaker Paul Ryan meeting young women at the U.S. Capitol to suggest Ryan’s a raging pedophile.

President Trump did something Monday I have long advocated. He met with a small group of conservative journalists, pundits and radio talk show hosts. I was among them. After ticking off a list of what he said were his accomplishments leading up to the arbitrary 100-day marker of his presidency, we asked him questions.

The New York Times version of political diversity is that even if you are a scorned "conservative" you can still be tolerated on their pages but ONLY if you are resolutely anti-Trump. A supposed conservative was recently hired by the Times but read this description about him in the very first sentence of this April 12 Politico story:
National Press Ignoring Portland, Ore. Parade Cancellation After Violent Threats Against GOP MarchersBy Tom Blumer | | April 27, 2017 | 7:00 PM EDT
A development has occurred which should erase any doubt that basic freedoms are in serious jeopardy in much of blue-state America. It is at least as disturbing as the failure of the University of California at Berkeley and the Berkeley Police Department to provide for the safety of conservative Ann Coulter, leading to the cancellation of her planned appearance there.
Laugh Track! NBC News Prez Says NBC Is 'Objective Journalism' and MSNBC Is 'Informed Opinion' at NightBy Tim Graham | | April 27, 2017 | 5:51 PM EDT
The Hollywood Reporter published a softball interview with NBC News president Noah Oppenheim, but there was one question that granted an unintentionally funny answer. When asked how the leftist tilt on MSNBC might shade public opinion of NBC News, he suggested the difference was that MSNBC offered “informed opinion in prime time,” while NBC defined “objective journalism.”
The executive wasn’t asked how comparing the Trump children to Saddam Hussein’s sons can be described as “informed opinion” rather than childish mudslinging. It’s amazing liberals still pretend that their product is “objective,” with no follow-up, such as “So how did hiring Chelsea Clinton as a reporter reflect an image of objectivity?”

On the same day conservative author Ann Coulter announced she would not speak to a campus group at the University of California in Berkeley, the New York Times blamed the victim and claimed that conservatives facing violent riots and protests on campuses across the country have no one to blame but themselves.

In the upside down world of American journalism, Jorge Ramos has now received the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Political Journalism. The circumstances for which Ramos is being honored suggests that the award is more accurately bestowed for political theater and activism than for political journalism. And that is truly unfortunate.

After spending months trying to get Trump voters to express regret for their support of the President, on Thursday, NBC News political analyst Nicolle Wallace took to the Today show to eagerly announce that she finally found a regretful supporter.

The loss of human persons in abortion can never be fully comprehended. But one pro-life group is breaking down the numbers of those missing in America due to Planned Parenthood – with baby socks, no less. On Wednesday, pro-life leaders and students called on Congress to defund Planned Parenthood by placing a powerful, visual message on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol: a pile of 196,543 pairs of baby socks.

It’s always fascinating to see media outlets give completely opposite takes on the exact same issue, depending on who’s in the Oval Office. The New York Times did just that today in another display of hypocrisy, typical of the left-wing paper. Like the networks, The Times is blaming the looming government shutdown on President Trump, but in 2013 when President Obama was in office and facing a government shutdown, the paper laid blame solely on Republicans instead of the sitting president.

MRC’s director of media analysis and NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham provided analysis on the Fox Business Network following White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s Thursday briefing, slamming the media for its collusion with the Democratic Party on attacking the Trump administration’s tax proposal as done solely to benefit President Trump.

Have you noticed how the mainstream media has recently mocked the notion that leftwing protesters are being paid? The idea is ridiculous they claim and only Trump and his supporters are making that silly charge. Well, guess what? A pair of leftwingers have confirmed in the April 26 Washington Post that protesters are indeed paid.
Before we get to that confirmation let us first review a couple examples of MSM mockery of the charge of paid protesters starting with the April 16 Politico in which Rebecca Morin discounts that this could happen in
